It doesn’t get more Southern than ham and Coca-Cola. Combine them for the ultimate soul food treat. This is an absolute must for my family every Easter, and it’s a recipe that I look forward to eating every year. The ham is braised in a mix of Coke, orange juice, and brown sugar, so the ham is succulent and tender. Use the leftovers to layer biscuits for breakfast the next morning.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (2- to 3-pound) cooked ham (cut in half, if needed, to fit into the slow cooker)
  • 2 cups cola
  • 1 cup orange juice concentrate

How to Make It

1. Remove the ham from ​the wrapper, and add to the slow cooker.

2. Pour Coke, orange juice and brown sugar on top of ham.

3. Cook ham on low until soft and tender, about 6 to 8 hours.
